Perfect for home self defense.
Points of interest:
1. Loader holds 8 rounds of 40mm ammunition. The switch on the back of the loader allows the gunner to fire all 8 rounds in the loader (requires a manual reload to push rounds through star wheels to replenish the loader) or to fire six rounds and stop (thereby avoiding a manual reload and the gun will resume firing when a clip of 4 rounds is dropped into the loader).
2. Gun cyclic rate is 120 to 160 rounds per minute. The D-shaped brass plate on the empty case chute (below the loader) has an indicator that tells the length of the recoil impulse. This assures the gun is cycling within its 120 to 160 rpm rate.
3. The left side has the stand for the 1st loader. He pushes the initial 8 rounds into the loader after he uses the long lever to cock the gun and lower the breech block. The safety selector — SAFE, SEMI, AUTO — is located here. The 1st loader has a ready rack of ammo to load the loader in case the 2nd loader is slow in passing ammo to him or is breaking out more rounds. The 2nd loader removes the clips of 4 rounds (4 clips per can) from the 116 pound ammunition cans. The 2nd loader passes ready rounds in clips of four to the 1st loader.
4. The right side is the gunner's station. He controls the drives for elevation and traverse — in manual or power. (He controls the auxiliary power unit that runs the drives for power elevation and traverse.) He also fires the gun with his left foot by pushing the firing pedal.
This would be an awesome piece of ordnance to own and shoot, but the cost of the ammunition would bankrupt you. Also, you need a very good range to contain the rounds; maximum effective range is 2,200 yards [maximum range (@45 degrees) is 11,100 yards].
